The Most Unique Food Charity In The World!

One of the best things about being a part of is seeing the wonderfully giving companies that use our services.  One of them is Canstruction Long Island.  They are a unique food charity in that they hold events where people come in teams and build sculptures out of cans of food products. As I am not an eloquent writer, I am going to copy and paste from their Facebook page exactly what it is they do.  I think this is one of the most amazing ways to get canned food products to a food bank.

It starts with one can.To feed the hungry. To lift the spirit.To change the world.

Canstruction® is a global charity of the design & construction industry to help fight hunger in our communities.

Produced locally by Canstruction® Long Island, Inc., the event is a design/build competition involving five-person teams of architects, engineers, contractors and/or those professionals mentoring students, associations or businesses as they design and build giant self-supporting structures made entirely of canned food. The structures remain on display to the public for two weeks, and then all food is donated to our local food bank, Long Island Cares, Inc., The Harry Chapin Food Bank.

The Canstruction® Long Island design/build competition puts a visual spotlight on hunger while showcasing the Long Island design community’s best and brightest.
